Installing 32 bit Revit Architecture 2012 on 64 bit operating system

Hi everyone,
I am having problems with my software version of Revit Architecture 2012 even though I have the system requirements necessary to run the 32 bit version of the software.
I know this cause I have checked my system properties and compared it to the system requirements, and I even downloaded a 32 bit trial version of the software previously and it was working fine.
I do have a 64 bit operating system but unfortunately my system properties aren't fit to run a 64 bit version of the software but are fit to run a 32 bit version instead. However it doesn't give me the option to setup the 32 bit version and automatically sets up the 64 bit version when realizing that I have a 64 bit operating system. After installation the program crashes every time I have a file open and try to modify or draw any object in the window.
Please inform with how I could tackle this problem and manually setup a 32 bit version of the software instead of the 64 bit version.
Below are the system requirements compared to my system properties
